Where is Low Income Housing Tax Credit housing being developed in Los Angeles County? C.J. Gabbe UP 206A Midterm Presentation November 1, 2012
Where is LIHTC housing being developed in L.A. County? Skills: geocoding; graduated symbols
Large concentrations in or near downtown Los Angeles
HUD encourages LIHTC development in Qualified Census Tracts Skills: geoprocessing (clip)
Qualified Census Tracts in central Los Angeles County
About 44% of the county’s LIHTC units are in QCTs Skills: attribute subset selection (created new shapefile with tracts coded as QCT)
Smart Location Database Land Use Diversity + Rail Transit Skills: inset map 27% of LIHTC units are within a one-half mile buffer of a Metro rail station
